Gerald Adams Elementary School
A Marathon father is
accused of biting his weeksold son and breaking his skull
and 15 ribs in what a doctor called a “horrific” case of
child abuse that could have
killed the boy.
Dominic Allen Davis, 23, of
41st Street, was charged with
one count of first-degree felony cruelty toward a child

and aggravated child abuse
that caused great bodily harm
and disability. If convicted,
Davis faces a maximum sentence of 30 years in prison,
Assistant State Attorney
Paunece Ramage said.
Monroe County detectives
began investigating Davis
on March 8 after Mariners
Hospital officials reported the
then-9-week-old boy’s severe
injuries to the Sheriff’s Office.
The boy’s mother claimed she
and Davis took him to the
Tavernier hospital because
she was unhappy with a previous visit to the Marathon
hospital, said Deputy Becky
Herrin, spokeswoman for the
Sheriff’s Office.
He was transferred to
Miami Children’s Hospital,
where a doctor told a detective, “This case represents
horrific child abuse, recurrent and was at the level of
potential lethality,” according to an arrest warrant.
The child’s skull fracture
was caused by someone “hitting him or using him to hit

dropped.
The broken ribs were likely
caused by “the child’s torso
being squeezed too tightly,”
the doctor reported. “At least
one rib had previously been
fractured and healed prior” to
the examination, the warrant
states. “The bite marks (on
the child’s knees) were obviously made by an adult and
the totality of the combined
injuries could have resulted
in the child’s death had treatment not been sought.”
Davis allegedly admitted to
biting the child, but denied
knowing how the other injuries occurred.
The baby’s mother told
detectives she saw Davis
treating the child “roughly”
on several occasions, to the
point where he would cry

Edwards pleads not
guilty to fed charges
The state’s mooring field pilot program will allow Monroe County to regulate boats outside established mooring fields. Otherwise, local
governments have no authority to do so.
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C.:
Former presidential hopeful John Edwards pleaded
not guilty Friday to federal
charges that he solicited and
secretly spent more than
$925,000 to hide his mistress
and their baby from the public at the height of his 2008
White House campaign.
In a 30-second statement
to dozens of reporters and
television news cameras that
surrounded him outside the
courthouse, he said he never
thought he was breaking the
law. Page 7A
Keys residents invited to give input at 3 meetings this week
BY TIMOTHY O’HARA
Citizen Staff
There is no place in the state, maybe
even the country, where boating is more
important than the Florida Keys. Boats
are people’s homes, offices and forms of
pleasure and transportation.
There are 26,181 boats registered in
Monroe County.
While boating and living on a boat
provides a certain quality of life, it also
comes with responsibilities that not all
boaters are abiding by.
The removal of derelict or abandoned
vessels has become an expensive problem in the Keys. In 2010, the county and
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) removed 103
vessels from Keys waters at a cost of
$273,000, said Rich Jones, county Marine
COMING SUNDAY

Resources senior administrator.
Boaters dumping their raw sewage
overboard and into nearshore waters is
also an issue.
To counter such problems, the state
Legislature established a mooring field
pilot program in 2009. It has created test
policies and regulations that promote
the establishment and use of mooring
fields and public access to state waters,
enhance navigational safety, protect maritime infrastructure and the marine environment, and deter improperly stored,
abandoned or derelict vessels.
The Monroe County Marine & Port
Advisory Committee is hosting three
public meetings this week — Tuesday,
Wednesday and Thursday — to take
input on the pilot program and the
implementation of its test policies and
rules.
The program allows the county to
create rules for vessels outside established, managed mooring fields. Before
the program, the state’s local governments had no authority to regulate the
anchoring activities of non-live-aboard
vessels. The county is partnering with
Marathon and Key West on the program
and possible rules.
The FWC has approved five areas of
the state to participate in the pilot program, which includes Monroe County.
Monroe County will adopt the rules, and
the county will coordinate with FWC on
enforcing them.
In January 2014, the FWC will submit
a report on the pilot program to the
governor and state Legislature. In July
2014, the local ordinances will end with

“In the 500 block of Simonton

with a city meter. There is a private bike rack in the space. Who
receives the revenue? The city or

pay?”
“Thank you, City Commissioner
Jimmy Weekley. You are the only

noise, parking and quality of life.
You are the best commissioner we
have had.”
“So where is the money for the
Key West Junior Football League?
Who is investigating this obvious
theft? I think it’s terrible that our
kids’ sports league is continually
robbed. Why doesn’t the city parks
and recreation director hold these
leagues accountable?”
“I know people are not that
bright in this town, but my comment about Fort Zachary had
nothing to do with weddings. I was
concerned about the huge party
that was held there this past weekend, complete with bands, fire pits
and alcohol. This is a state park,
not a hotel. My kids and I heard it
until 1 a.m. from five blocks away.
Weddings are fine; massive parties
are not.”
“No other event besides Fantasy
Fest is given a five-year permit and
noise exemption. They should have
to get one every year like everyone
else. Please encourage the mayor
and City Commission to treat
Fantasy Fest like all other events
and offer a one-year exemption.”
“What happened to Weekley’s
slogan ‘Cleanest Little City in
America’? Restricting the times
of leaf blowing is one thing, but
to prohibit leaf blowing by city
street crews is outrageous! Let the
employees use proper equipment
to keep this city clean.”
“In the future, you might want
to rethink your headline ‘Happy
Memorial Day.’ Many people think
of Memorial Day only as a holiday
from work or school, when the reality is that it is a day to remember
and honor those who have died,
especially military.”
“Do the Conchs not have any
baseball players going to college to
play next year? I thought they won
a district championship.”
“I agree with converting the old
Waterfront Market into a bowling alley. It would be nice to offer
some other form of recreation
besides ‘power drinking.’ Those of
us who live here year-round and
don’t spend our time off at the
bars would be very appreciative.”

CRIME REPORT
Knife-wielding man
arrested at bus stop
CITIZEN STAFF
MARATHON — A homeless man accused of wielding
a knife outside a convenience
store early Friday was arrested
after a witness became concerned for nearby children.
The man was charged with
carrying a concealed weapon,
a misdemeanor.
A deputy was called to 5561
Overseas Highway at 12:26
a.m. after a convenience store
clerk reported that a suspicious
man with a knife was outside,
according to a Sheriff’s Office
offense report.
The witness told the deputy
that he became nervous when
the man pulled out the knife
and pointed it at the ground
near the entrance to the store.
There were two small children
inside the store at the time,
according to the report.
Deputies viewed surveillance footage at the store that
reportedly showed the suspect
entering the store twice, but he
apparently had pulled the knife
out of the camera’s range.
The suspec was stopped
near a bus stop and taken to
the Monroe County Detention
Center in Marathon.
Information in the Crime
Report is obtained from reports
provided by area law enforcement agencies.

Young eagle released today
City posts traffic survey online
Beaches test OK for bacteria
Audubon of Florida will release a
juvenile bald eagle at 4 p.m. today at
the Key West Golf Course, 6450 College
Road, that was found emaciated there
on May 1.
The bird was cared for at the Key
West Wildlife Center and transferred
to the Audubon Center for Birds of
Prey in Maitland on May 12. He has
since gained weight and is flying well,
Audubon said, and will be released
where he was found since it is familiar
territory and there are other juvenile
eagles in the area.
The public is invited and asked to
arrive at least 15 minutes early, meeting
in the golf course parking lot. It marks
the 428th bald eagle the Audubon center has released in Florida since 1979.
The city of Key West is asking the public
to take a quick survey about traffic, online
at www.keywestcity.com.
Consultants Calvin, Giordano &
Associates posted the survey on the city’s
website to gauge how the community feels
about traffic issues on the island.
The survey is part of the Carrying
Capacity Traffic Study, which will look at
specialized vehicles and their impacts
to roadways and adjacent land uses to
help officials with future regulation. It will
cover the volume of vehicles, traffic circulation, conflicts between vehicular and
non-vehicular traffic, and methods for
reducing impacts of traffic in residential
neighborhoods. The results of the study
also will be used in determining the capacity of area roads.
The Monroe County Health
Department’s water-quality tests on
Wednesday showed none of the county’s beaches had high levels of bacteria
this week.
Fecal coliform and enteric bacteria
are normally found in the intestinal
tract of humans and other warmblooded animals.
The Health Department says high
levels may come from runoff or sewage
from pets, wild animals or humans. It
can cause disease, infections or rashes.
Don’t swim in the water if a warning is
issued.

in another visionary group.”
PPS is a 35-year-old nonprofit that has
helped plan parks for some 2,500 communities nationally and internationally,
according to its website.
The Commoners, a local grass-roots group
seeking to inject the public’s wishes into the
project, proposed hiring PPS for $19,500.
Residents Richard Tallmadge and Christine
Russell head up the Commoners.
“We have the cart before the horse,”
Tallmadge told the board of current plans.
“I can guarantee that hiring [PPS] will speed
this process up. You are stuck in the sand.”
Bob Kelly was the only board member
who spoke up for the proposal.
“I think this is a very worthwhile investment to make,” he said. He quoted from
the PPS website: “‘Many great plans get
bogged down because they are too big,
too expensive and simply take too long to
happen.’”
But interim Planning Director Don

Russell was unhappy with the meeting’s

But another resident questioned the

“Do we really need to go to a supermega firm for this?” Paul Williams asked.
“It’s a park. Let’s keep this simple.”

Makeover
Continued from Page 1A
for the resort’s U.S. 1 corridor. The existing restaurants
will be refurbished. And a new
restaurant, Shula’s Burgers,
owned by former Cincinnati
Bengals coach David Shula,
is scheduled to open in early
fall. Holiday Isle also plans to
unveil a new logo.
The entire makeover, from
the rooms to the logo, is
designed to give Holiday Isle a
look that is part retro and part
fresh, Van Bergen said. It’s all
in keeping with a renovation
that is meant to evoke both
continuity with the resort’s 60year history and modernity.
“It’s an evolution of what
Holiday Isle has been, not a
revolution,” Van Bergen said.
Buoyed by the late Joe Roth,
its longtime managing partner
known for his genius in promotion, Holiday Isle became
one of the driving forces of
the Islamorada economy in
the 1980s and ’90s. Visitors,
enticed by the resort’s oceanfront location and reputation
for bacchanalia, traveled from
around the region, and even
the country, to party there.
But by the 2000s, the resort
was falling into disrepair.
The bottom fell out midway
through the decade when a
developer purchased the
property for $98 million and
announced plans to demolish Holiday Isle and replace
it with a pricey hotel-condominium resort.
Ocanos, as it was to be
called, wasn’t to be, however.
The real estate market collapsed. The property fell into
foreclosure. And investors at
Connecticut-based Starwood
Capital Group eventually took
it over in 2009.
Holiday Isle management
has been struggling ever since
to get the message out that
they didn’t close and don’t
intend to. At the same time
they’ve wrestled with how to
promote the resort going forward. In interviews over the
past few years, successive
resort managers have touted
plans to seek a more familyfriendly market and to phase
out popular party events,
most notably May’s annual
Hospitality Expo.
But now Van Bergen says
the expo, previously known
as the Bartender’s Bash, isn’t
going anywhere. Other events,
such as TJ’s Pimp & Ho Party,
will also continue. But with
the renovation, they’ll occur
in a nicer, and more effectively
managed, environment.
“That’s our market,” Van
Bergen said.
This summer’s renovations
aren’t the first phase in the
Holiday Isle upgrade. Last
year the resort repaired the
roof of its World Famous Tiki
Bar, upgraded balconies and
portions of the marina and
tore down the old Bimini Row
of shops on the southeastern
portion of the property. So far,
they’ve spent $2 million, Van
Bergen said.
The work to be done over
the next six months will be
phased so the resort can
remain open throughout the
project. Van Bergen said he
hopes the upgrades and attendant publicity will finally dispel any lingering misconceptions that Holiday Isle is going
to close.
When the work is complete,
room rates will go up marginally, he added, but not a lot.
“What’s going to finance the
$8 million is the occupancy,”
Van Bergen said. “I want more
people here. That’s what the
renovation is going to do.”

Unjust property tax
system needs reform
igid policies
designed to protect homeowners
statewide from rapidly
inflating taxes are continuing to do their work
in the housing recession.
Owners of thousands of
properties now owe nothing to help support local
governments. ...
State tax policy clearly
needs an overhaul.
The rules determining
who owes how much have
become far too complicated.
If you live on your
property, you are entitled
to a homestead exemption worth up to $50,000.
Half of that exemption
doesn’t apply to school
taxes and is phased in,
so your property must be
worth $75,000 to get the
full exemption.
The Save Our Homes
tax cap also further lowers
the taxable value of some
homes, and it is portable,
so buyers of identical
properties on the same
day can be treated very
differently by the tax collector.
It has become impossible to look at a house
and guess its tax bill, even
if you can guess its value.
And guessing values,
especially in less affluent
neighborhoods, has also
become harder. In some
modest neighborhoods,
the market value fell a
shocking 50 percent in
one year. ...
Under the state’s tax
policy, the people who
can’t afford to buy a
home, or have lost their
home, pay much more in
taxes through rents than
do homeowners.
R
Editorial
Property taxes are by
their nature progressive
and fair. The more valuable your property, the
more you pay. But the
gradual layering of proowner exemptions and
tax caps to the structure
has made a simple system
increasingly obtuse and
unjust. ...
There are many possible reforms that would
broaden the tax base and
make it more equitable,
especially to those who
cannot afford to buy
even a bargain-priced
home. Forcing people
into homes they cannot
afford would be a bad
mistake, but so is taxing
them through their rents
at many multiples of what
owners pay to live in similar buildings.
Even if property values
rebound sharply, the Save
Our Homes cap will keep
tax revenues low for the
foreseeable future. Many
thousands of city and
county property owners
are paying $100 or less a
year for their municipal
services.
If values fall, more and
more people will pay
nothing as property owners.
It has become fashionable to push for lower
taxes and ever-smaller
government. But we
don’t know anyone who
wants less police protection, more potholes and
second-rate schools. And
that’s what the present
system, without adjustment, will bring.

Nonprofit fights
human trafficking
I am sure many of your readers were shocked by Nicholas
Kristof’s article in Saturday’s
Citizen (on your editorial page)
about sexual “trafficking” in
India, with girls as young as 9
forced into prostitution.
Human trafficking is not confined to Third World countries.
Recently, a missionary spoke
to Glad Tidings Community
Church about sexual trafficking
in Belgium. Often, young women
are enticed to the country by
promises of a legitimate job and
then forced into prostitution by
threats that their parents would
be killed if they resist. In at least
one case, a girl’s father was killed
as an example.
And the problem even exists in
the U.S. Last week, a couple was
arrested in Broward County for
running a brothel with underage
females.
Human trafficking is a $40 billion illegal enterprise, second
only to drug trafficking.
In March of 2007, a group of
Key West churches of all denominations held a rally at the high
school to draw public attention
to the issue. The rally showed
videos from several organizations involved in fighting this
despicable practice — words
are not adequate to describe the
horror of young girls sold into
sex slavery.
One of the organizations we
highlighted was the International
Justice Mission (IJM), which uses
legal measures to prosecute traffickers and free their victims.
Von Hoffman’s essay described
the work of IJM in saving several
young girls in India.
For those who want to help,
I’d encourage them to Internetsearch the IJM, whose work was
also covered in a lengthy article
in The New Yorker a year or two
ago and on a story on “Dateline
NBC.”

Angela Street not a
good City Hall option
Where is Harry Powell when
you need him?
It appears as though the
resolve to move City Hall from
Angela Street is wavering. What
a shame! It occurs to me that
City Hall, at its present location,
is not unlike Peary Court was
years ago. Once the decision is
made and executed, we have to
live with it for decades. Peary
Court was one of the few open
spaces that was thoroughly
enjoyed by locals who used it for
softball fields.
No replacement was ever
found and this important part
of Key West life was lost forever.
It had nothing to do with a need
for housing but more the fact
that “Coasties” don’t mix with
Navy people. Key West lost.
We are about to lose again.
There are several locations
where a perfectly adequate City
Hall could be found. It could
be at Glynn Archer, which has
many benefits, including saving
a historic structure, parking, a
central location and it is out of
the congested downtown area.
Or it could be where it is today at
Habana Plaza. A cheap solution
but obviously not the palatial
offices that seem to be a way
of life in this county. In fact,
how about sharing space with
the county? As the number of
people it governs has shrunk,
the amount of new office space
has perversely increased.
The Angela Street city complex needs to be torn down and
converted to parking. We need
this to enhance the downtown
commercial district — and, yes,
I’m a property owner.
The revenue from parking fees,
property taxes and employment
would go a long way toward paying for a City Hall somewhere
else.
Please don’t politicize this
important decision that will
affect this community negatively for the rest of our lives. This is
a once in a generation opportunity to create a legacy of good
government. Take the high road
and do the right thing.

Championing of middle
class is just a charade
A recent letter (“How did GOP
become anti-middle class?”
on May 25) picks up anew the
president’s quest for class warfare. The writer complains the
Republicans stand in the way of
taking from the rich.
Honestly, with the current
leadership in the GOP, I don’t
think Republicans could fight
their way out of a wet paper sack.
They seem quite content with
business as usual in Washington
that ensures their elite status
regardless of party affiliation.
And those who buck the system like [U.S. Sen. Jim] DeMint,
[U.S. Rep. Paul] Ryan and [U.S.
Rep.] Michele Bachmann must
be shunned.
But the championing of
the middle class by the liberal
socialists is a charade. The writer’s true goal is summed up in
words like “pragmatism” (Saul
Alinsky would be so proud!),
“shared sacrifice” (of the “collective” I suppose), and “investment in the nation and its citizens” (socialism!). The group
Saul Alinsky disliked the most
was the middle class, because
they are the most content with
capitalism and providing for
themselves.
By the way, on the back
cover of my copy of “Rules for
Radicals” are the names Barack
Obama and Hillary Clinton.
What is clear in the letter, and
also similar to the president, is
the writer’s dislike for our nation.
Look at what he thinks of us:
second-rate health care, Third
World power grid and “antiquated” transportation. He needs to
do some traveling. There’s a reason people are sneaking across
our borders.

Yet in most states in this
country, including our own
state of Florida, you can be
fired from your job for simply
being gay; our marriages are
not recognized by our own
government, our jobs are
not secure, our loved ones
shunned to the margins by a
government hellbent on our
alienation as a people.
Just last week in Tennessee,
overzealous Republicans in
their legislature, elected on a
promise of jobs, instead have
turned their attention and
vitriol on our community,
reversing all laws that protect
the LGBT community from
discrimination and even outlawing the word “gay” in public education. The people of
Tennessee should be ashamed!
Yet Key West serves as a bastion of freedom for gay and
lesbian people; a place with
an openly gay police chief,
county mayor, city commissioners, business leaders,
Rotary presidents and openly
gay teachers in our schools. A
place where drag queens raise
money alongside a straight
Republican city mayor and an
openly gay county mayor with
no fuss or fanfare — just being
who we are and a beacon of
hope for others.
This is why Key West is a
source of pride for me and
should be a source of pride

compared to other cities. Yes,
we can attribute some of this
success to our special location,
weather and architecture, but
I would propose that it is more
than these accidents of destiny. I propose that our success
is rooted in the fact that our
community is a living example
of those most American values — equality, fairness and
opportunity for gay and lesbian people.
Key West, be proud of who
you are; the colors of the
rainbow are bright here and
we continue to live out our
national motto, E pluribus
unum — out of many, one.
This is the promise of America,
and Key West is proud to say
that the promise of America
is being fulfilled here. Let’s
continue to show the world
that gay and lesbian equality is
not only possible but essential
for our nation’s prosperity and
future.

Shooter of friend gets life
Audubon director: Cuts hurt projects
Teen gets 55-year sentence
A South Florida woman has been
sentenced to life in prison for killing
her friend and pool cleaner.
A Palm Beach County judge sentenced 47-year-old Marcia Rodrigues
on Friday. She was convicted last
month of first-degree murder.
Rodrigues claimed Ildo Araujo
raped her in November 2007 and
told her that her ex-husband had
hired him to kill her. She said she
was able to break free and shoot
him in self-defense.
Prosecutors said her story was a
fabrication.
Defense attorneys claimed a
combination of self-defense and
insanity, but jurors sided with prosecutors.
The executive director of Audubon of Florida
says the state will no longer be able to protect
its natural resources under Gov. Rick Scott’s plan
to cut the water management budget by 30 percent.
Audubon’s Eric Draper said Friday at a public
forum on water in Orlando that the state’s water
management districts will have a tough time performing their jobs with the $218 million in cuts.
But the new executive director of the South
Florida Water Management District says she isn’t
concerned since the districts will still be able to
fund critical projects. Melissa Meeker says the
cuts will come from shaving the salaries of top
managers, eliminating inefficiencies and reducing employee benefits.
The forum was sponsored by Associated
Industries of Florida and the American Water
Works Association.
A teenager who pleaded guilty to
killing another teen at a Jacksonville
party was sentenced to 55 years in
prison.
Circuit Judge Thomas Beverly
imposed the sentence on 18-yearold Antonio D’Andre Kilpatrick
Thursday. Kilpatrick pleaded guilty

on April 20.
Officials say Kilpatrick shot 16year-old Kenneth Michael McCloud
Jr. during a July 2010 sweet 16
party at Jacksonville International
Airport’s Clarion hotel. About 50
people were at the party when the
shooting occurred.
Prosecutors had asked for a 60year sentence.

CSI testifies smelling
decomposition in car
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
BY KYLE HIGHTOWER
The Associated Press
ORLANDO— A crime scene
investigator testified Friday
in the Florida murder trial of
Casey Anthony that he smelled
the odor of human decomposition when he first opened the
door to examine her car just
days after her initial July 2008
arrest.
The prosecution questioned
several sheriff investigators on
the ninth day of the trial. They
testified about the collection
and examination of several
items belonging to Anthony
and her daughter Caylee following the child’s reported disappearance.
Those items included Casey’s
white Pontiac and toothbrushes, a comb and hairbrush that
had been used by the 2-yearold. Hair and cheek cell samples that could be tested for
DNA were also later taken from
her mother.
Anthony, 25, is charged with
killing her toddler in the summer of 2008. She has pleaded
not guilty. Prosecutors say the
child suffocated after duct tape
was placed over her mouth.
Caylee’s skeletal remains were
discovered in a wooded area
near her grandparents’ home
in December 2008.
Under cross-examination by
the defense, Orange County CSI
investigator Gerardo Bloise said
that he only smelled an odor
consistent with some type of
decomposition while he examined Anthony’s car. Later, he got
more specific when prosecutors
asked for his opinion of what
type of decomposition it was,
based on more than 20 years of
experience in the field.
“Professionally speaking, my
opinion is that it was the smell
of human decomposition,” he
said.
The testimony and introduction of evidence collected
from Anthony’s car is a precursor to expert witness testimony
regarding the contents of the
car’s trunk that lead state attorney Linda Drane Burdick said
she will begin today. The prosecution contends that Caylee’s
decomposing remains were at
some point inside the trunk of
Anthony’s car and that her hair
was found there.
Earlier in the day, the state
introduced three more videos
of jailhouse visits Anthony
had with her parents, George
and Cindy Anthony. In the July
2008 recordings, Casey told
her parents her “heart is aching” because she wanted to be
home with them and Caylee.
The state showed the series
of jailhouse visit videos over
the past two days to highlight
how, following her initial arrest,
Casey continued to perpetuate her original story about a
nanny named “Zanny” kidnapping her child. That account
changed suddenly at the start
of her murder trial when her
lawyer for the first time contended the child accidently
drowned in the family’s pool.
During an Aug. 14, 2008, visit
with her parents, Casey told

her trial at the Orange County Courthouse in Orlando.
her mother, “Just tell her that
we forgive her,” when asked
what message Casey wanted to
covey to the nanny she claimed
had taken Caylee.
“All I want is my daughter
back,” she told her parents during the video. “All we want is
our Caylee.”
In a tape from July 30, 2008,
the Anthonys arrived at the jail
wearing special T-shirts featuring Caylee’s picture. When her
mother asked how she liked
the shirts, Casey Anthony
asked her father to stand up
and model it.
During the visit, Casey
Anthony complimented the
family on their efforts to find
Caylee, telling them to “keep
the faith.” Anthony claimed the
child had been missing for 31
days before police were called
in mid-July 2008.
“You are doing a great job,
mom,” Casey Anthony said
during the visit. “I know it’s
hard. I know better than anyone right now. You are doing
so great.”
She talked with her parents
about believing that Caylee
would come home. Once the
child returns home, Casey
Anthony told her mother, “I’m
going to be the crazy, overprotective mom. I won’t let her out
of my sight.”
As they talked about Caylee,
Casey Anthony told her mother: “She’s not just my little girl.
I mean she’s my baby, but she
will always be your baby and
dad’s baby and (brother) Lee’s
baby.”
At another point, Casey told
her father that the family would
“all be back together” with her
missing daughter.
While watching the videos
on Friday, Anthony could be
seen at times with tears in her
eyes.
ACLU sues to stop enforcement of new elections law
BY BRENDAN FARRINGTON
The Associated Press
TALLAHASSEE — Two
groups that advocate for voter
rights sued Republican Gov.
Rick Scott on Friday to stop
implementation of a new elections law that critics say was
written to discourage voters
likely to support Democrats.
The lawsuit was filed in a
Miami federal court by The
American Civil Liberties Union
of Florida and Project Vote
on behalf of nine plaintiffs. It
argues that the elections law
changes must first be approved
by the U.S. Department of
Justice Department to ensure
that they aren’t discriminatory
before they can be implemented anywhere in the state.
The law puts tighter restrictions on groups that conduct voter registration drives,
requires voters who give a
change of address at the polling place to cast a provisional
ballot and reduces the number of early voting days. Critics
say voter registration drives
often seek to enroll minority
voters, and that the provision

Kevorkian dies at age 83
4 in US linked to E. coli outbreak
Girl killed in Ferris wheel fall
Jack Kevorkian, the audacious doctor who spurred on the
national right-to-die debate with
a homemade suicide machine
that helped end the lives of dozens of ailing people, died Friday
at a Detroit-area hospital after a
brief illness. He was 83.
Kevorkian died at William
Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak,
where he had been hospitalized
since last month with pneumonia and kidney problems, close
friend and prominent attorney
Mayer Morganroth said.
The retired pathologist said he
injected lethal drugs that helped
some 130 people die during the
1990s.
Health officials now say four people in the
U.S. may be linked to the food poisoning outbreak in Europe.
All four were in northern Germany in May
and officials are confident that they were infected with E. coli in that country. Three of them
— two women and a man — are hospitalized
with a kidney complication that has become a
hallmark of the outbreak.
Officials said Friday they are also checking
two possible E. coli cases in U.S. military service members in Germany. The source of the
outbreak hasn’t been pinpointed but salad vegetables are suspected.
An official from the Food and Drug
Administration says produce in the U.S. remains
safe. The government has stepped up testing of
imported food from Germany and Spain, but
very little is imported from those countries.
An 11-year-old girl on a school field
trip died Friday after falling about 100
feet from a moving Ferris wheel at New
Jersey’s Wildwood boardwalk.
The girl fell about 12:30 p.m. from the
amusement park ride on a day heavily
attended by schoolchildren.
She was taken by helicopter to a
nearby hospital, where she died, Capt.
Lynn Frane of the Cape May County
Prosecutor’s Office said.
The girl’s name and hometown were
not released. Authorities initially said
she was 17.
The girl fell from the upper half of the
ride while it was in motion, Wildwood
Police Capt. Robert Regalbuto told The
Press of Atlantic City. Regalbuto estimated she fell about 100 feet.

Edwards pleads not guilty
BY NEDRA PICKLER
AND TOM BREEN
The Associated Press
WINSTON-SALEM,
N.C.
— Former presidential hopeful John Edwards pleaded not
guilty Friday to federal charges
that he solicited and secretly
spent more than $925,000 to
hide his mistress and their
baby from the public at the
height of his 2008 White House
campaign.
In a 30-second statement
to dozens of reporters and
television news cameras that
surrounded him outside the
courthouse, he said he never
thought he was breaking the
law.
“There is no question that
I have done wrong,” he said.
“And I take full responsibility
for having done
wrong. And I
will regret for
the rest of my
life the pain and
the harm that I
have caused to
others. But I did
Edwards
not break the
law.”
Edwards did not have to post
bond, but he had to surrender
his passport and is not allowed
to leave the continental U.S.
He also can’t have contact with
one of the wealthy benefactors who gave him money that
prosecutors say was used to
hide the affair.
The indictment contained six
felony counts, including conspiracy, four counts of receiving
illegal campaign contributions
and one count of false state-
ments for keeping the spending off the campaign’s public
finance reports.
It said the payments made
with money from two wealthy
supporters were a scheme to
protect Edwards’ presidential
ambitions.
“A centerpiece of Edwards’
candidacy was his public image
as a devoted family man,” the
indictment said.
“Edwards knew that public
revelation of the affair and the
pregnancy would destroy his
candidacy.
Prosecutors said the spending was illegal because the 2004
Democratic vice presidential
nominee should have reported
it on public campaign finance
filings and because it exceeded
the $2,300 limit per person for
campaign contributions.
Coast Guard installs woman in top post
BY STEPHANIE REITZ
The Associated Press
HARTFORD, Conn. — One of
the earliest female graduates of
the U.S. Coast Guard Academy
returned Friday to take over
its top spot, becoming the first
woman selected to lead one of
the nation’s five military service
academies.
Rear Adm. Sandra Stosz was
installed as the academy’s 40th
superintendent in a change-ofcommand ceremony Friday on
the New London campus. She
graduated from the academy in
1982, the third class to include
female cadets.
Stosz, a native of Takoma
Park, Md., takes over at the
Coast Guard Academy amid a
push to draw more women and
members of underrepresented
minority groups into the cadet
corps.
This fall’s incoming class has
the most cultural and ethnic
diversity in the academy’s history. Coast Guard Commandant
Adm. Robert J. Papp, who presided over Friday’s change-
of-command
ceremony, said
maintaining
and expanding
that diversity is
key to the Coast
Guard.
“That’s the
Stosz
priority I am
going to give her,” Papp said
of Stosz.
Stosz, 51, previously was
the Coast Guard’s director of
reserve and leadership and also
commanded two cutters during her 12 years of experience
at sea.
They included an assignment
as the first female commander
of a U.S. icebreaker, the 140foot Katmai Bay, in northern
Michigan.
Stosz was a high school discus and swimming standout
and a top scholar in her graduating class when she enrolled
at the Coast Guard Academy in
1978, two years after it began
admitting women.
She said her return more
than 33 years after her graduation is a sign of how far women
have come in the service.
“We’ve come a long way and
I’m proud to be a role model,”
Stosz told The Associated Press
on Thursday. “But this really is
part of a natural progression.”

Court rules on Mapuche case
Home-built rocket over Baltic sea
Suicide bombers hit mosque
A ruling by Chile’s Supreme Court
on Friday failed to persuade four
Mapuche Indian activists to give up
a long-running hunger strike against
the government’s use of a tough antiterrorism law to crack down on their
efforts to regain ancestral lands.
The court downgraded some convictions from attempted murder to
assault for the four convicted activists
who attacked police and a prosecutor
in 2008, but it then added robbery,
court spokesman Nibaldo Segura said.
The --+ were hoping to walk free,
saying Chile’s use of the dictatorshipera law violated their due process,
imposing harsher sentences than the
underlying crimes would otherwise
carry.
Two Danish space enthusiasts on Friday
successfully launched a homemade unmanned 30-foot rocket over the Baltic Sea.
Peter Madsen and Kristian von Bengtson
used a barge near the Danish island of
Bornholm as a launch pad for their 1.6 ton
rocket, which flew some five miles high into
the blue sky.
“It was a fantastic flight,” Madsen said
after the projectile took off at 1432 GMT following an earlier ignition failure. “The joy
was huge. I looked back at the launch ramp
and then I realized it had gone.”
The team, which calls itself Copenhagen
Suborbitals, watched the takeoff quietly
and then suddenly burst into jubilation and
started hugging each other.
Their plan was for their 1.6 ton rocket to
reach a height of 10 miles.
A suicide bomber attacked a
mosque filled with Iraqi politicians
and policemen Friday and another
blew himself up inside the hospital
where the wounded were taken, killing a total of 21 people in Saddam
Hussein’s hometown.
The twin attacks — as well as the
fact that the bombers were able to
infiltrate areas that were supposed to
be secure — left people in Tikrit feeling under siege.
It was the third major attack in
Tikrit this year, reflecting the difficulties Iraqi security forces face in protecting their own people from Sunni
insurgents still intent on undermining the country’s post-Saddam leaders, many of whom are Shiite.

A large plume of ash rises early Friday from the Popocatepetl volcano

House adopts resolution
scolding Obama on Libya
BY DONNA CASSATA
The Associated Press
WASHINGTON — The
Republican-controlled House
on Friday adopted a resolution rebuking President Barack
Obama for dispatching U.S.
military forces against Libya
without congressional approval. The vote was 268-145, over
White House objections.
The resolution by Speaker
John Boehner said the president has failed to provide a
“compelling rationale” for
the nearly three-month-old
operation to aid rebels battling
Moammar Gadhafi’s forces.
During Friday’s debate,
Democrats and Republicans
complained that Obama
ignored Congress’ constitutional authority to declare war.
The nonbinding measure
insists that Obama provide
Congress with details on the
scope of the mission and its
costs within 14 days. It also
bars U.S. ground forces except
to rescue an American service
member.
Shortly after adopting the
resolution, the House rejected
a considerably tougher mea-
sure advanced
by Rep. Dennis
Kucinch that
demanded an
end to U.S.
involvement in
the NATO-led
Boehner
operation in
Libya. The vote was 265-148.
The GOP leadership hastily
pulled together the Boehner
resolution amid concerns in
both parties that the Kucinich
measure was gaining ground.
The Senate had no plans to
consider the measure, which
would allow the U.S. to continue to remain engaged in
the mission and would have
no impact on the logistical
and intelligence support the
Americans have been providing.
Boehner assailed the administration for failing to answer
several questions about the
operation.
“Today’s debate on Libya is
the first step and clearly there’s
information that we want
from the administration that
we asked for in this resolution and it’s information that
we expect to get,” the Ohio
Republican told reporters.
SANAA, Yemen — President Ali Abdullah
Saleh was wounded when rebellious tribesmen struck his palace with rockets Friday,
targeting him for the first time in a dramatic escalation of fighting that has turned
parts of the capital into a battleground and
pushed Yemen toward civil war.
One of the rockets smashed into a
mosque on the palace grounds where the
president was praying along with his top
leadership.
It was a stunning hit on the regime’s most
senior figures: Among the nine wounded
were the prime minister, Saleh’s powerful
top security adviser and the two heads of
parliament, as well as the cleric leading
prayers. Seven guards were killed.
Officials said Saleh had only slight injuries — Deputy Information Minister Abdu
al-Janadi spoke only of “scratches to his
face.” But there were indications the injuries may have been more severe.
Saleh, in his late 60s, was taken to a
Defense Ministry hospital, while officials
promised repeatedly that he would soon
appear in public. But by late Friday, state
TV had aired only an audio message from
the president, with an old still photo.
“If you are well, I am well,” Saleh said in
the brief message, addressing Yemenis. He
spoke in a labored voice, his breathing at
times heavy. He blamed the rocket attack
on “this armed gang of outlaws,” referring
to the tribal fighters, and called on “all
sons of the military around the country to
confront” them.
The bold assault directly on the presi-

Defiant Mladic calls genocide charges ‘obnoxious’
BY ARTHUR MAX
The Associated Press
THE HAGUE, Netherlands — Last seen
as a swaggering general in the Bosnia war,
Ratko Mladic needed help rising from his
chair for war-crimes judges Friday, his
limp right hand too weak to put on earphones without assistance.
But as his arraignment proceeded,
his old bluster returned as he called his
indictment “obnoxious” and told judges
he doesn’t want help walking “as if I were
a blind man.”
The capture and trial of the Bosnian
Serb wartime commander on charges of
genocide and war crimes committed during the 1992-95 Bosnian war closes the
bloodiest chapter in European history
since World War II and is nearly the final
act of the Yugoslav tribunal, a court that
launched a renewed era of international
justice after the Nuremberg trials of Nazis
war criminals.
Together with his former political boss
Radovan Karadzic, Mladic is accused of
orchestrating the four-year war for Serbian
domination in Bosnia that cost 100,000
lives and climaxed with the July 1995 massacre of 8,000 Muslim men and boys in the
U.N.-declared safe zone of Srebrenica.
MARTIN MEISSNER/The Associated Press
Bosnian women from Srebrenica who lost
relatives in the massacre protest Friday during the initial appearance of former Bosnian
Serb Gen. Ratko Mladic at the U.N.’s Yugoslav
war crimes tribunal in The Hague.
After 16 years on the run, the first clear
glimpse the world got of the 69-year-old
Mladic came after a curtain separating
the public gallery and the courtroom
was lifted Friday. Wearing a peaked cap,
he saluted the gallery with his left hand
through bulletproof glass. Observers stood
and strained to see Mladic, clearly thinner
and weaker than when he led the Bosnian
Serb army.
Two U.N. guards helped Mladic to his
feet when the judges entered the courtroom, and he saluted them as well. With
his right arm apparently impaired, a guard
had to help him put earphones over his
head to hear the Serbian translation. When
he responded to questions from the judge,
his speech was slow and slightly slurred.
Mladic declined to enter formal pleas
to the 11-count indictment, but admitted
no guilt. “I defended my country and my
people,” he said, before presiding judge
Alphons Orie cut him short.
Mladic told the three-judge panel he is
“a gravely ill man,” but he remained alert
throughout the hearing, nodding or shaking his head as Orie spoke. He seemed
confused as Orie read a summary of the
38-page indictment, and said he had been
unable to read the thick file of legal documents he was given after being extradited
from Serbia on Tuesday.
“I would like to read these obnoxious
charges leveled against me,” he said. “I need
more than a month for these monstrous
words. I have never heard such words.”
Protests grow in spite
of attacks, Internet cut
BY ZEINA KARAM
The Associated Press
BEIRUT — A Syrian city that
was bombed into submission three decades ago after
a crushed uprising became
a new center for protest and
violence Friday, as activists
said troops opened fire on a
crowd of thousands and killed
at least 34. Still, people nationwide poured into the streets
in unprecedented numbers,
defying the crackdown and a
government chokehold on the
Internet.
One of the largest protests calling for the ouster of
President Bashar Assad was
in Hama, where Assad’s father
killed thousands in 1982 and
emerged to rule uncontested,
the carnage seared into national memory.
“It is a real massacre,” said
a witness who took part in
Friday’s Hama protests and fled
the gunfire. “People were running, shouting. We ran up to
people’s homes and hid there
until the gunfire died down,”
he said.
Friday’s protests appeared to
be the biggest since the uprising began in mid-March, with
people gathering in ever larger
numbers in cities and towns
across the country, said Rami
Abdul-Rahman, director of the
Syrian Observatory for Human
Rights. Protests also swept
through several Damascus
suburbs, as well as the capital’s
central Midan neighborhood,
which has seen demonstrations in recent weeks.
The movement has been
loosely organized on Facebook
pages and increasingly inspired
by footage of the crackdown on
YouTube and other video sharing sites, but Friday’s Internet
cuts appeared not to deter

Opponents of the Syrian regime demonstrate Friday outside the
Syrian embassy in Ankara, Turkey.
participants. Abdul-Rahman
said the increase in protesters
reflected the lack of trust in
any government concessions,
including a call for national
dialogue.
In Hama, the witness and
activists said at least 100,000
people took part in the protest,
making it one of the largest in
the city since the start of the
11-week uprising. Thirty-four
people were killed, said AbdulRahman.
Rights groups say more than
1,100 people have been killed
nationwide since mid-March.
“Today’s protests are a reaction to the so-called overtures
by the regime which has lost all
credibility. It’s the people saying we will not accept this anymore,” said Najib al-Ghadban,
a U.S.-based Syrian academic
and political activist.
Al-Ghadban said the Hama
demonstration was especially
significant, calling it “a qualitative leap that will encourage
others to do the same.”

KEY WEST — Paul Findlay is no stranger to
teaching summer tennis programs. Entering
his 29th year of teaching Key West’s youth, the
Bayview Park professional said he has seen several kids, including his own, turn into top-notch
tennis players.
“It‘s a good place to get kids started in tennis,
in a summer program,” said Findlay. “Hopefully
once they get a good kick-start, playing three
times a week, it will get them going for a yearround thing. Most of the kids that start during
the summer, we find, continue during the school
year.”
Findlay said the only major difference in the
nearly three decades of teaching the program is
the way he now runs the sessions. Along with his
son, Yann, now a USTA professional and local
tennis coach, Findlay said he has found getting
the kids dedicated to playing tennis full time
might be the hardest part of the sport. “Really
we just want to get them interested in the game,”
said Findlay. “We used to stress the technical a
bit more, but nowadays they want the younger
kids to learn though playing. So we have special
equipment ... balls that move slower, smaller
rackets, you lower the net and you make the
court smaller.
“They are actually playing tournaments around
the country like this. You don’t put a whole lot of
emphasis on winning at this age; we really want
to get them playing and to the point where they
can sustain a rally, because that is really the
hardest part when you are first learning.”
Starting with kids as young as 5, Findlay said
he splits the classes up into groups from novices
to experienced competitive players who have
been part of the program. With the assistance of
his son, Findlay said the student divisions can be
split even more.
“We are just teaching it in a way that they
learn the technique when they play, as opposed
to learning it and then playing,” said Findlay.
“Hopefully we can get them to a point where
they can play with each other and that way we
can start to break it down and teach them what
they are doing and what they need to work on.
“With the help of Yann we can cover a lot,”
Findlay added. “He’s real good with the kids. He’s
been helping me since he was 12, and now he’s
a USTA certified professional, so it’s nice to have
him here to help.”
The less experienced players attend three
times a week at 8:30 in the morning and the
returning players twice a week in the evening,
Findlay said. He can accommodate different
schedules, though, he said. It’s $15 per session;

PARIS — Dusk was
descending, wind was
swirling and full-throated chants of “Ro-ger!
Ro-ger!” from 15,000
or so fans finally were
hushing as Roger Federer
stepped to the baseline to serve
— one point from returning to the
French Open final and one point
from ending Novak Djokovic’s 43match winning streak.
Federer rocked back, unfurled
his body and whipped an ace,
his 18th Friday, to seal a 7-6
(5), 6-3, 3-6, 7-6 (5) victory
over Djokovic, then roared
and wagged his right index
finger, as if telling the world, “I’m
still No. 1!”
So what if the official ranking
says otherwise? This
was Federer showing he’s still got
what it takes.
He’ll go for a

to improve to 44-1 at

By summoning all of the strokes
and resolve required to win a taut,

Federer also managed to do what
no one else had in quite some time:
defeat Djokovic, who entered the
day 41-0 in 2011 and unbeaten since
losing to — guess who? — Federer in
late November.
“I wasn’t here to spoil the party,”
said the third-seeded Federer, who

by winning the 2009 French Open.

DESTIN
—
The
Southeastern Conference has
capped football signing classes at 25, a move coaches voted
against and one school presidents hope will be adopted
across college football.
The powerful league, which
will hand out an SEC-record
$18.3 million in shared revenue to each of its 12 schools,
had allowed up to 28 players
to be signed annually.
The SEC also voted Friday
to eliminate divisions in
men’s basketball.
KANSAS CITY, Kan. — Chris

Tonight at Kansas Speedway,
he’ll be there when the green

Series race.
The truck chief for Travis
Kvapil’s No. 5 Toyota is the only
person to be involved in every

Showalter says it has “been

Stricker hit a 6-iron from

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — Will Roberts
struck out a career-high 14 in a four-hitter,
and Danny Hultzen drove in three runs to
lead No. 1 national seed Virginia past Navy,
6-0, in the NCAA tournament Friday.
Roberts (11-1) retired the last 17 batters
— nine by strikeout — for Virginia (50-9).
The junior right-hander, who pitched the
eighth nine-inning perfect game in NCAA
Division I history on March 29 against
George Washington, walked none and
improved to 18-1 in his career.
The Cavaliers got a two-run triple from
Hultzen — the possible No. 1 draft pick as
a pitcher — in the first, RBI singles from
Hultzen and Kenny Swab in the third and
cruised.
Ben Nelson (6-6) allowed six runs for

The Gators (46-16) scored 16 runs in the
first three innings — all off Manhattan ace John
Soldinger — and coasted the rest of the way.
Florida, the No. 2 national seed, advanced to play
Miami (37-12) in the winners’ bracket Saturday.
Florida batted around in each of the first three
innings, and Tucker did much of the damage. He
had an RBI single in the first, a two-run homer in
the second and another two-run shot in the third.
His second one, his 12th of the season, cleared
the scoreboard in right.
Karsten Whitson (8-0) allowed two hits in 3 1-3

Kilcrease (8-4), a senior right-hander appearing Clemson, S.C.

Continued from page 1B
It’ll be their fifth meeting
— and fourth final — in Paris
since 2005. Nadal is 4-0 in
those matches, part of his 16-8
overall lead head-to-head.
A sixth French Open title
would tie Nadal with Bjorn
Borg for the most in history.
“I don’t think about that,”
said Nadal, who turned 25
Friday. “A lot of respect for
the great Bjorn, but I ... focus
on (trying) to play well. For
me, is much more important
win Roland Garros than equal
Bjorn.”
Djokovic is the only other
player to have beaten Federer
more than eight times, including a 3-0 mark this season
before Friday. Long considered
one of the top talents in tennis,
Djokovic credited a handful of
factors with helping him excel
recently: more maturity; con-
fidence from helping Serbia
win its first Davis Cup title in
December; a gluten-free diet
he now refuses to discuss in
any detail. He won his second
major title at the Australian
Open in January and arrived
in Paris as a co-favorite with
Nadal, thanks in part to having beaten the Spaniard in two
tournament finals on clay in
May.
“It had to end somewhere,”
said the second-seeded
Djokovic, who would have
clinched the No. 1 ranking
with a victory over Federer
and will move up anyway if
Nadal loses Sunday. “Best five
months of my life, my tennis career. I cannot complain.
It was definitely an incredible
period.”
Nadal’s victory over the
fourth-seeded Murray was
far more compelling and
competitive than a typical
straight-set sweep, yet still
paled in comparison to what
CLEMSON, S.C. — Tommy La Stella homered
twice and Hayes Orton went 5 for 5 with three
RBIs for Coastal Carolina in a rout of Connecticut.
The Chanticleers (42-18) scored four runs off
Connecticut ace Matt Barnes in the fifth inning to
take a 7-0 lead.
After La Stella’s leadoff shot, and Orton added
a two-run single.
Federer and Djokovic produced later. Because NadalMurray lasted more than
three hours — and because
the tournament pushed back
the start of the men’s semifinals from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. to
accommodate TV — Federer
and Djokovic didn’t set foot
on Court Philippe Chatrier
until early evening. It was
nearly 6 p.m. when the first
point was played, and the
heavy gray clouds clustered
overhead limited the light.
By the end of the match, at
9:36 p.m., it was tough to see.
Both men knew that if Djokovic
managed to push their semifinal to a fifth set, play would
have been suspended for the
night and resumed today.
Nevertheless, Federer and
Djokovic produced riveting tennis, particularly in a
70-minute first set filled with
lengthy exchanges, plenty of
defense and terrific shotmaking.
MIAMI — Florida Marlins
rookie Scott Cousins has been
receiving death threats despite
repeatedly apologizing for a
collision with San Francisco
Giants star Buster Posey.
The collision at home plate
during a game May 26 left
Posey with a broken bone in
his lower left leg and three
torn ligaments in his ankle.
He’s had surgery and is done
for the season.
Giants general manager Brian Sabean criticized
Cousins on his weekly radio
show on KNBR this week, calling the play malicious and
unnecessary. Sabean also
said that “if I never hear from
Cousins again, or he doesn’t
play another day in the big
leagues, I think we’ll all be
happy.”
“He chose to be a hero, in
my mind,” Sabean said. “If
that’s his flash of fame, that’s
as good as it’s going to get, pal.
We’ll have a long memory.”
Cousins issued a statement
on Friday in which he again
apologized for the collision.
“I hope and believe that Mr.
Sabean’s comments were made
in the heat of the moment and
are based more on his fondness for Buster Posey than on
any animosity towards me,”
Cousins said in the statement.
“This situation is still an open
wound for many, including
myself. As I have stated previously, nobody outside of
Buster feels worse about his
injury than I do.”
Cousins said he’s tried to
contact Posey but has been
unsuccessful.
“I do believe, however, that
the play was clean and totally
within the rules of the game,”
Cousins said. “Explaining over
and over that I would never
intentionally hurt another
player for any reason won’t
change the minds of those
who doubt my sincerity or
intent.”

Marlins’ Outfielder
Posey felt Cousins could
have slid around him but also
said it was a legal play.
Marlins outfielder Logan
Morrison came to Cousins’
defense during an interview
Friday on Siruis/XM radio,
calling Sabean “wildly unprofessional” for calling out his
teammate.
“When has he played in
the big leagues? When has he
played in the minor leagues?”
Morrison said. “Correct me if
I’m wrong, but he’s never been
in a situation like that. It’s terrible.
“Why would you wish anything like that on anybody?”
Morrison continued. “He’s
getting death threats from
people. This is his hometown, San Francisco. He’s
worried about his family and
his friends that are there.
And now (Sabean) is going to
make comments like that? It’s
ignorant, it’s inappropriate
and he has no idea what the
hell he’s talking about.”
Florida manager Edwin
Rodriguez said before Friday’s
game against the Milwaukee
Brewers that he doesn’t have
to defend his young outfielder because Cousins didn’t do
anything wrong.
“As a team we don’t have
anything to say,” Rodriguez
said. “If people want to keep
talking about that, let them
talk.”

Players urge appeals court to lift lockout
The Associated Press
ST. LOUIS — NFL players urged a
federal appeals court Friday to declare
the lockout illegal, saying the league
had no right to impose a work stoppage that is now approaching three
months with no sign of a deal that will
save the 2011 season.
In a courtroom packed with some
200 people, including out-of-work
players and retirees on folding chairs
brought in to handle the crowd, attorneys on both sides of the bitter labor
fight got roughly 30 minutes each to
make their cases.
The appeal centers on the lockout that began hours after months
of labor talks fell apart March 11, the
players’ union dissolved and the fight
ended up in federal court. The NFL
contends the union decertification
was a sham meant to gain leverage
in the talks and the conflict remains
subject to labor law.
The players argue that antitrust
laws apply and the lockout put in
place under labor law needs to be
put on hold, as it was in April by U.S.
District Judge Susan Richard Nelson
in Minnesota.
“We’re asking for a preliminary
injunction for a short period of time,”
the players’ counsel, Theodore Olson,
said in the hushed courtroom. “We’re
simply asking that the laws of the U.S.
be respected.”
The arguments came before a threejudge panel of the 8th U.S. Circuit
Court of Appeals whose two earlier 21 decisions have sided with the league
and upheld the lockout. The panel
took the arguments under advise-
ment with one judge, Kermit Bye, saying only that a ruling would come in
“due course” and he suggested the
two sides figure things out.
“We wouldn’t be all that hurt if you
go out and settle that case,” Bye said
with a smile as he closed the 68-minute hearing. “We will keep with our
business, and if that ends up with
a decision, it’s probably something
both sides aren’t going to like.”
The league is starting to see the
effects of the lockout, with furloughs
and other recent moneysaving steps.
Training camps traditionally start in
late July and the first preseason game
is little more than two months away.
The hearing has been seen as pivotal in the dispute over how to share
the NFL’s $9 billion in annual revenue,
and the turnout included NFL Players
Association leader DeMaurice Smith
and two dozen players, including
Green Bay’s Cullen Jenkins, the Jets’
Tony Richardson and Giants standout
Osi Umenyiora.
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell
spent Friday in Fort Bragg, N.C., a
league spokesman tweeting that
Goodell isn’t a lawyer and “wouldn’t
have added much to the legal proceedings.” Jets owner Woody Johnson
was at the hearing.
Paul Clement, an attorney representing the NFL, waved off a reporter’s
question about whether the NFL had
the upper hand.
“As we tried to make clear in there,
we think the lockout is actually the
best way to get players back on the
field,” said Clement, who like Olson is
a former U.S. solicitor general. “I think
people understand that this will be
resolved; the resolution will include a
NATIONAL BASKETBALL ASSOCIATION
Shaq moving
on again to
next chapter
— retirement
The Associated Press
WINDERMERE — Shaquille O’Neal
walked up the stairs to the makeshift stage
in his home gymnasium, pulled out a few
index cards with some notes and said the
words he never thought were coming.
Good-bye.
O’Neal made his retirement official
Friday, reiterating what he revealed in a
video posted to Twitter two days earlier
that his NBA playing days are over. Saying
those words made his pro career fullcircle, since it all ended at his home in a
suburb of Orlando, the city where his pro
days began when the Magic made him the
No. 1 pick in 1992.
“Never thought this day would come,”
O’Neal said. “Father Time has finally
caught up with Shaquille O’Neal.”
He insisted he will not return, either, nor
will he coach anyone but his three sons.
His career ends with 28,596 points, 13,099
rebounds, 15 All-Star selections, four championships and three NBA finals MVP awards.
“I’m the luckiest guy in the world,”
O’Neal said.
For a finale, it was in a fitting place.
O’Neal made his retirement official in a
suburb of Orlando, the city where his NBA
career began when the Magic drafted him No.
1 overall in 1992. He bought the home in 1993,
and it’s remained his base ever since — even
after he left Orlando for Los Angeles, Miami,
Phoenix, Cleveland and Boston throughout
the remainder of his NBA career.
Many hallways in the 29,000-squarefoot complex are lined with jerseys, from
Garnett to Gretzky, football players, NBA
friends, NBA rivals, even baseball players. The doorways are enormous, as one
would expect when the primary occupant
of the home is over 7 feet tall.
Guests were ushered in across a red
carpet laid out over his meticulous garage,
which held luxury cars and motorcycles.
Family and close friends gathered in the
massive kitchen while the gymnasium
filled for a celebration that was tinged for
many with sadness nonetheless.

Said James: “As far as celebration, that word has been
used with us all year. But we
knew how much time was left
in the game still.”
The Heat’s superstar trio of
James, Wade and Chris Bosh
heard plenty of criticism
when they took center stage
in an arena spectacle last July
after forming their partnership. And when Miami eliminated Chicago in the Eastern
Conference finals, the Bulls’
Joakim Noah said the Heat
were “Hollywood as hell.”
But Thursday’s Hollywood
ending was not what the Heat
had in mind, and such a dramatic finish seemed improbable when Wade’s 3-pointer gave
the Heat their biggest lead midway through the fourth period.
collective bargaining agreement. And
the fastest way to get there is to get the
antitrust laws, which were just a misfit
in this context, out of the picture.”
Judges Steven Colloton and Duane
Benton wrote for the majority then
that “the league has made a strong
showing that it is likely to succeed on
the merits.” Bye dissented both times,
favoring the players.
“Ultimately, collective bargaining is
a much better way to resolve these
disputes than antitrust litigation,”
Clement said.
NHL: STANLEY CUP FINALS
Canucks, Bruins show
creativity can win Cup
BY GREG BEACHAM
The Associated Press
JOHN RAOUX /The Associated Press
Shaquille O’Neal announces his retirement from the NBA at his home in Windermere on
Friday. On the wall behind him are his jerseys from the Miami Heat, Phoenix Suns and the
Cleveland Cavaliers.
BY TIM REYNOLDS
Tom Brady
Patriots quarterback
The “Last Center Left,” as Shaq once
famously dubbed himself, has left the
NBA.
“This is a bittersweet day on behalf of
the family,” said O’Neal’s mother, Lucille
Harrison. “It’s been 19 years, but the 19
years have gone by so quick.”
Many of the people closest to O’Neal
were in attendance, including his college
coach, LSU’s Dale Brown. He told a slew of
Shaq stories, including the time when the
then-high-schooler asked permission to
eat the peanuts in a hotel minibar — while
other prep players he was with at the time
were swiping liquor.
Brown lauded the work O’Neal’s parents
turned in, even chiding the college scandals of today by pointing out that when he
went through the LSU recruiting process,
there was no shady deals, no under-thetable anything.
“This just didn’t happen,” Brown said.
“The other thing that’s very obvious to me
is that this should be a beacon, a beacon
light for all young people watching this.”
O’Neal thanked his parents, thanked
his children for putting up “with
Daddy’s schedule,” even thanked NBA
Commissioner David Stern for what he’s
done leading the league.
His immediate future is uncertain. He’ll
likely work in television soon, but his
health comes first. Injuries derailed him
mightily this season with the Celtics, and if
his injured Achilles’ doesn’t improve soon,
surgery may be an option.
“I’ve got to get that right,” O’Neal said,
“before I go into the next chapter.”
He changed the game with his combination of size, strength and athleticism,
bringing down baskets with his powerful
dunks. He thought nothing of spending
huge sums of money — $650,000 one
year in Miami — to play Shaq-a-Claus for
underprivileged kids at Christmas. And
his quotes are the stuff of legend, ranging
from his playful insistence to be called
“The Big Aristotle” to saying at his Miami
As the Mavs called timeout,
Wade held his follow-through
pose and teammates raised
their fists. Wade and James
swapped jubilant gestures all
the way to the Heat bench,
while the Mavericks stewed.
“It angered a lot of us,”
Dallas’ Tyson Chandler said.
“It’s upsetting when you’re out
there playing hard and someone celebrates right in front of
your bench.”
The tide quickly turned. The
Heat missed their next nine
shots, while Mavericks made 9
of their last 10. The game’s final
points came on a driving layup
by Dirk Nowitzki with 3.6 seconds left for a 95-93 victory.
“Obviously this one hurts,”
Wade said. “We’ve got two days
to think about our mistakes and
blowing a 15-point lead. So we
made it a lot harder on ourselves. We’re going to see what
we’re made of as a team.”
signing party that he was like “toilet paper
and toothpaste ... I’m proven to be good.”
There was another side of O’Neal as
well, of course.
He clashed at times with Kobe Bryant
and Phil Jackson when they were together
with the Los Angeles Lakers. When he left
the Heat, the relationship between him and
the team had eroded badly, almost forcing
Miami’s hand into trading him to Phoenix.
But for the most part, those who played
with him have great appreciation for him.
“A living legend,” Heat guard Dwyane
Wade said.
O’Neal said he leaves with some regrets,
foremost among them not being able to
reach 30,000 points, and blaming that on
his inability to make free throws. When it
comes to the NBA, that’s the only thing he
won’t miss any more — those 15-footers
that he struggled with his entire career.
Even at home, even with everyone in the
room knowing what he was going to say,
O’Neal confessed that he was anxious. His
mother pointed that out as well.
“I was nervous, Momma,” O’Neal said.
“I’m sorry.”
Everyone laughed, as they did several
times throughout the ceremony. He joked
that the New York Knicks were calling for
an interview. He cited his work in “awardwinning movies, such as Kazaam.”
He turned serious at times, too, thanking coaches like Phil Jackson and Doc
Rivers, and proudly saying that his doctorate will be completed by January.
He’ll then be called Dr. O’Neal. Good
thing, because all his famous nicknames
— Shaq-Fu, The Big Aristotle, Diesel and
especially Superman — are now retired
along with him, he said.
Henceforth, he’ll call himself The Big
AARP.
He was asked toward the end of the
ceremony what advice he would give to
players today.
“Be leaders,” O’Neal said, “and not followers.”
There have been doubts all
season about the Heat’s ability to close. During the regular
season they went 5-14 in games
decided by five points or less,
but during the playoffs they had
been at their best in the fourth
quarter — until Thursday.
The Miami meltdown left
second-guessers with plenty of
fodder to fill the next two days.
Why didn’t Bosh foul Nowitzki
on the Mavs’ final play? Why
was Bosh even the one guarding Nowitzki? Why didn’t Wade
get the ball more at the end
after scoring 36 points in the
first 41 minutes? Why didn’t the
Heat have a timeout left to set
up a final play?
Wade conceded the Heat
should have grabbed Nowitzki
before he launched his last shot.
“Just a mental breakdown,”
he said.
Bosh said he was guilty of
bad defense on Nowitzki.
“He gave me a quick move,”
Bosh said. “At that point I didn’t
feel that I had leverage for the
foul, because he was going into
a shooting motion.”
Nowitzki, who needed 22
shots to score 24 points, went
against Udonis Haslem much of
the night. Coach Erik Spoelstra
conceded he could have given
Haslem the assignment again
on the Mavs’ final possession.
“That’s a tough one,”
Spoelstra said. “I know U.D.
probably is really wishing he
had that opportunity.”
But nothing could stem the
Heat’s collapse.
“When it started to slide, it just
kept on going,” Spoelstra said.
“But we’ve been a very resilient
group all season long. We’ve been
tested. We’ve had our moments
where we feel uncomfortable and
feel like our backs are against the
wall. That’s when we’ve responded and been our best.”
VANCOUVER,
British
Columbia — When Daniel and
Henrik Sedin streak down the
ice, exchanging crisp passes in
a display of their jaw-dropping
offensive creativity, it’s easy to
forget the Vancouver Canucks
were the NHL’s best defensive
team this season.
When Boston’s top line
presses the attack, changes
styles on the fly and comes
up with yet another clutch
postseason goal, it’s tough
to remember the Bruins are
nearly as defensively stingy as
the Canucks.
The Stanley Cup finalists are
reminding the entire NHL that
elite defensive teams don’t
have to fall into the trap — or
any other defensive scheme
that results in boring hockey.
Defense can also be a natural
outgrowth of a commitment
to goal-scoring, Canucks captain Henrik Sedin said.
“Who says you have to do
one or the other?” he asked.
In Game 2 tonight, the
Canucks will continue their
quest to show it’s possible to win
a title without retreating into
a defensive shell, while Boston
will look to build on a quietly
impressive offensive season —
except for that slumping power
play — for a club without a bigname scorer.
Both teams proved their
approaches work in the series
opener. Vancouver’s 1-0 victory was hardly a boring defensive game, with 12 power
plays, numerous tantalizing
scoring chances and an edgeof-the-seat intensity before
Raffi Torres’ winning goal in
the final minute.
“Even when we’re not getting rewarded, we’re out there
taking chances and trying to
find ways to be aggressive and
score,” Boston forward Milan
Lucic said. “We’re not a team
that’s usually going to sit back
and wait and hide. We try to
make things happen.”
Vancouver scored more
goals (3.15 per game) and
allowed fewer (2.2) than any
team in the NHL during the
JULIE JACOBSON/The Associated Press

Burrows looks for the rebound

Columbia. Game 2 is tonight.
regular season, while Boston
was fifth in goals and second
in defense, giving up just 2.3
goals per game. Even after
managing just one goal in
their last two playoff games
combined, the Bruins are
outscoring Vancouver in the
postseason with 3.05 goals
per game, compared to the
Canucks’ 2.68.
And they’ve done it without
the trap, which turned off many
casual hockey fans for life when
New Jersey, Dallas and other
clubs had extensive success
with thoroughly boring play
in the 1990s. The scheme still
shows up in the NHL in various
disguises, such as Tampa Bay’s
1-3-1 formation this season,
yet it’s no longer considered a
necessity for winning.
“We’ve tried to play the right
way all year long, which is having a good balance between
good team defense and good
team offense when it’s time
to go on the attack, when it’s
appropriate,” Vigneault said.
Boston doesn’t share the
Canucks’ overall aggression,
and the Bruins can fall into a
defensive shell when necessary. They didn’t have a scorer
in the NHL’s top 25 during
the regular season, but their
top line is emerging as one of
the best in hockey during the
postseason.

THE KEY WEST CITIZEN ◆ SATURDAY, JUNE 4, 2011
HOROSCOPES for today
Saturday, June 4, 2011
Your competitiveness is likely
to be accentuated in the year
ahead, whether it is applied
toward social or business
endeavors. Once you know what
you want, you’ll find the way to
make things happen as you envision.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -The company you keep will influence your attitude and outlook in
a big way. You’ll be surprised at
the people who wear their welcome the best.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -If you find yourself in a competitive game of one-upsmanship,
accentuate your humility instead
of your ego and you’ll come out
way ahead of your challenger
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Your
awareness of the subtler aspects
of the conditions under which
you work will increase your effectiveness. What you accomplish
5B
KEYSWIDE CLASSIFIED
BRIDGE TIPS
will stand the test of time.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -Financial conditions look encouraging, mostly because you won’t
be indifferent to the profitable
circumstances surrounding you.
You’ll utilize everything at your
disposal.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) - Your judgment is likely to be
much keener and wiser than that
of those with whom you associate, so when it comes to anything
important, stick by your guns.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22)
-- Because you won’t treat any
of your responsibilities or obligations lightly, those who work
at your side will abide by your
example and handle their duties
as well as they can.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec.
21) -- Socializing could turn out
to be not only an excellent source
of relaxation and amusement,
but also produce some useful
information as well. Be attentive
to what’s being said.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan.
19) -- If you want to get into the
action on a new endeavor, timing
will be a critical factor. You must
know when it’s right to quit shillyshallying and take action.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19)
-- It behooves you to ask as
many questions as you need in
order to understand something
important about your future that’s
being explained to you. Seeking
clarification is not only smart, it’s
essential.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20)
-- Try to do something different
if you can, and leave plenty of
room for spontaneity. It won’t hurt
to start out in one direction but
end up doing something entirely
unplanned.
ARIES (March 21-April 19)
-- You’ll be surprised at who possesses the information you’re
looking for, so don’t show indifference to anybody, even the low
man on the totem pole.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
-- It might surprise you as to how
much you are able to accomplish. Don’t put any limitations
on your plans; just keep plugging
ahead until you run out of time or
energy.
Wrong call
and wrong play
By Phillip Alder
Lady Dorothy Nevill, an
English writer and horticulturist who died in 1913, said,
“The real art of conversation
is not only to say the right
thing at the right place but to
leave unsaid the wrong thing
at the tempting moment.”
The art of bridge is making
the right call or play at the
right moment. Look at the
North hand in today’s diagram. West opens one club.
What would you do?
Get those five-card majors
into the auction -- overcall
one heart. Do not (as chosen
at the table) make a takeout double. If the diamond
six were a low spade, many
experts would then double,
but that would still risk missing a 5-3 heart fit. (However,
yes, a one-heart overcall
would make it harder to find
a 4-4 spade fit. You need to
guess the right call at the right
time!)
Two hearts is easy to
make, declarer losing two top
spades, a spade ruff, the heart
ace and the club ace. But
when North doubled, East
raised to two clubs, and South
advanced with two spades,
which was passed out. (Yes,
West erred also. Knowing of
at least a nine-card club fit
and aware that East must be
short in spades, he should
have rebid three clubs, which
could have been made with
an overtrick.)
Against two spades, West
led the heart seven. East won
with his ace and returned the
suit. Now declarer should
have played a club. Then
defeating the contract would
have required careful defense.
At the table, though, South
led a trump. West defended
well by ducking the trick.
Declarer now played dummy’s heart queen, but West
ruffed, cashed his top trumps,
and shifted to clubs for down
two.

INSECURE MIDDLE-SCHOOLER IS HER OWN
HARSHEST CRITIC
DEAR ABBY: I’m in middle school.
I have had a few boyfriends since I
started here. I try my best to look OK
each day, but I always find a flaw in
the way I look or act. Sometimes I
find it hard to trust guys when they
tell me I’m pretty. I have low
self-esteem, so it’s hard for me
to believe them. Can you please
help me learn to trust people
and be comfortable with my
body? -- AWKWARD IN OGDEN,
UTAH
DEAR AWKWARD: If it’s
any comfort, 99 percent of girls
your age feel the same way you
do. Your body is still a work
in progress because you’re not
finished developing yet. Believe it or
not, no one is as preoccupied with
your looks and perceived “flaws” as
YOU are, so please try to be a little
kinder to yourself and less critical.
There is truth to the old saying,
“Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.”
By that I mean -- if people tell you
you’re attractive, that is the way you
appear to them. So just smile and say,
“Thank you for saying that.” Accept
the compliment, but don’t rely on it
to gauge your self-worth. Concentrate
on developing your personality and
your mind, and you’ll be on a path to
success in everything you do.
DEAR ABBY: My son is in the
process of being divorced from his wife
after only four short years. Before they
married, I gave him an engagement
ring and wedding band that had been
in our family for years. Now that they
are divorcing, I’d like to have him get
the rings back.
Is this an acceptable request? -HURTING MOTHER IN NEW YORK
DEAR HURTING MOTHER:
Engagement rings and wedding rings
are gifts that are given with the promise
of marriage. The heirloom rings are
now the property of your soon-to-beex-daughter-in-law. Depending upon
your relationship with her, you could
ask for them back or offer to buy them
from her. She may be more receptive
to the offer if she hears it from you
rather than your son. However,
they are hers to keep or dispose
of as she wishes.
DEAR ABBY: My husband lost
his job in November. Since the
holidays, none of our friends
has asked us to go out again.
I don’t know if they feel bad
about talking about their work
or if they think we can’t afford
it, but I’m really lonely.
We’ve invited friends a few
times, but I get weary of making all
the effort. A night out laughing with
friends would be nice; so would being
remembered. What should we do? -LONELY HEART CLUB
DEAR LONELY: Your friends may
be uncomfortable for the reasons you
mentioned, or feel guilty because they
are not experiencing the struggle that
you are. Of course, the answer is to
keep reaching out. But I will add this:
The time for people to step forward and
be supportive is when someone they
care about NEEDS it. That’s what true
friendship is all about. And with the
rate of unemployment in this country
what it is today -- “do unto others ...”
DEAR ABBY: What is the protocol
when someone is asking to see his
mother’s will while she is still in
good health? -- PONDERING IN
PENNSYLVANIA
DEAR PONDERING: The two most
difficult subjects to discuss are death
and money, both of which come into
play when the topic of wills comes up.
A wise and compassionate parent will
discuss this with her (or his) children
so there won’t be any surprises when
the eventual happens.
